Street banners featuring artwork by Verona Area School District students will be on view from May 18 through May 30. Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the Verona Area Education Foundation (VAEF), in partnership with the City of Verona and Verona Area School District, sponsored this year’s street banner program. With the theme of “Hometown USA,” this inaugural project features 40 student works reproduced on street banners hung on East Verona Avenue this spring.
Banners will remain on display at the library through May 30. Copies will then be auctioned off. Proceeds from banner sales will allow the banner program to continue in future years and benefit VAEF’s grant program, which provides funds to teachers and staff for special projects that involve creativity, community ties, and building leadership skills. It is a non-profit organization that exists on donations and volunteer help.
